make my pores bigger!
This product is really good in removing whiteheads/blackheads andany other unwanted gunks on your nose...but unfortunately, my pores gets bigger and now there's no skincare that will help to shrink it even using pore shrinking products doesn't help..too good to be true,even using this product twice a week,, still made my ppores bigger.

Works very well after a shower
I find the best time to use these pore strips (or any for that matter) is after a shower when your pores have opened up/softened from the hot water as you can extract a lot more of the blackheads out that way. It works very well on me and the amount of gunk that comes out is unbelievable. I find that my skin feels a bit tight and dry afterwards so I just make sure to moisturise after. My boyfriend also uses it once a week and his is a mini forrest (he has an oily tzone).

Does What It Claims
This is an amazing product that I've been using on and off for absolutely years. Anyway, they REALLY work. The stuff that comes out of your skin and remains on the strip is incredible (although gross!), but you can really see and feel an instant difference. I would always say to follow through with a gentle cleansing and tone the area just to really clean and get any remaining strip glue off the nose area. I don't use these all the time, only fortnightly, as I do tend to have senitive skin these days, but they've caused me no problems in that department.
One thing however, I find these stick too close to the delicate skin around my eyes, so whenever I use them I smooth them down but immediately lift the top two edges away from my eye area carefully, because removing the strip when it's dry from near the eyes hurts. Well, it does for me. I suggest cutting a small piece off from the top two corners of the strip prior to putting on if you have delicate skin near your eyes too.
Overall, this product is great value for money and I would highly recommend it to anyone with oily skin suffering from blackheads.

original is better
The only benefit of the ultra is that the strips are longer, however I find that the original removes more of my blackheads and gunk from my skin. but still decent

I have always used the original ones with great results. I recently bought this one thinking it might be better but I was mistaken! This did nothing for me, didn't even remove my whiteheads properly let alone the blackheads. Plus, it says on the back of the box that it removes more dirt than the original just because the strip is longer, not because of a new formulation that's more effective or anything. It should probably have said that in front. I will go back to the original one.

Removes blackheads effectively
Surprisingly I found these strips to work the majority of the time. I use them once a week to give my skin a deep cleanse. I steam my pores first to ensure they are open for the strips to work more effectively. I found these strips very easy to apply and use. I slowly remove them from my nose when stiff to the touch. I feel rewarded when I see what is on the strip as quite a lot gets on it that would usually be trapped in my skin. Removes most of my blackheads but not all of them.
One complaint is my skin looks red after use and feels dry and tight around the nose. Overall a great product other than a couple issues.

See all the gunk stuck to the strip like a forrest!!!
Great product! Removes all the blackheads. Easy and convenient! Bought it along on holidays to use in hotel room at night. See all the gunk that has been removed from your nose! My boyfriend is also addicted to these strips!
Use after a shower to maximise results!

Not as effective as the originals
For some reason these don't work on me as well as the originals do. And my eyes sting from the scent of these ones which has never happened with the originals.

It unclogs pores
Have used other brands of this in the past without any huge results. However these really do unclog the pores. I get the best results after I have had a shower, because the shower opens my pores up more and the strips can pull out the rubbish from my blocked pores. Will be buying more of these and will be in my regular routine at least every fortnight.

Works... but not always
Firstly, these are the only brand of pore strips I've bought that actually worked. I bought another brand that shall remain unnamed but they did nothing.
The first time I used these I was super impressed - I could actually see all the gunk that had been pulled out. The more I used these, the less impressed I was. They still pulled out some gunk, but LESS than the first time. And no, this isn't because my pores are less blocked, because they visibly are.
I think these are effective in pulling out blackheads that are really at the surface of the skin, and not those that are really deeply embedded. I will still use these, but they aren't the solution to blackhead problems.
